About the mckenzie river


The McKenzie River is a tributary of the Willamette River located in Oregon, stretching for approximately 90 miles. The river was named after Scottish-Canadian explorer Donald McKenzie, who first discovered the river in 1812. The McKenzie River is renowned for its clear water and pristine environment, making it a popular recreational destination for fishing, rafting, and hiking. The river also has several hydroelectric dams, including Cougar, Blue River, and Trail Bridge Reservoirs, which provide electricity to the surrounding areas. Aside from its recreational and energy uses, the McKenzie River is also crucial for irrigation, particularly for farming in the Willamette Valley. The river is home to a variety of fish species, including trout and salmon, and has been a conservation focus for many organizations.
